Mitten Brewing Company’s employees pitched this T-shirt idea to their owners in an effort to show their support for the Black Lives Matter movement. The T-shirts became so popular that they now decided to sell them while supporting our community.

On the back of each T-shirt reads a list of 9 names including George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor ending with the phrase “And Countless More”. Mitten Brewing Company believes investing in black owned businesses is one way to show that this cause is important to them.

If you would like to purchase a T-shirt you can find them online at for 20 dollars plus 5 dollars shipping. 100% of their proceeds will go to support Grand Rapids Area Black Businesses. You have until July 1 to get your order in.
